Poll: TVGuide.com Readers Say Kris Allen Could Pull Upset
Kris Allen, American Idol
Season 8 of American Idol has been Adam Lambert's to lose since Day 1, but a majority of TVGuide.com readers are calling for an upset.
Based on Tuesday's final performance show, 53 percent of voters picked Kris Allen as the singer they believe will receive the confetti shower at the Nokia Theater Wednesday.
While that margin arguably makes the race still too close to call, before the final two performed, Adam had a dominating 63 percent of our voters' support. Did Kris perhaps inherit some of third-place finisher Danny Gokey's fan club, or did his final performances help him overcome the gap?
In any case, this could go down as the closest finale since Season 2's Ruben Studdard-Clay Aiken neck-and-neck showdown.
What say you, Glambert fans? Has Adam still got this in the bag, or are you worried that the boy next door may play spoiler to guylined victory parties everywhere?
